Sump Pump Maintenance in Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana
Inspecting and servicing a sump pump periodically can keep it in good operating condition while identifying problems that could lead to failure. At HELP, we offer sump pump maintenance services throughout Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeast Indiana. Our experts will thoroughly inspect your sump pump and perform all necessary maintenance, such as:
As often as needed, but only when needed. Under most circumstances, your sump pump shouldn’t be running for a day straight. It should only be running a lot when it rains. If your sump pump constantly runs or seems to run a lot at random, it might be time for a replacement. You could also have a plumbing issue, like a slab leak, adding water to your lawn.
Do sump pumps need regular maintenance?
Regular maintenance of your sump pump will help you avoid major problems for longer, extending its service life so you can avoid premature sump pump replacement. Without regular checkups, there’s a risk of your sump pump failing unexpectedly and leaving you with a basement full of water or an outrageous energy bill.
Is it normal for my sump pump to smell bad?
Unlike your drains, it’s not necessarily a big problem if your sump pump smells bad — but if it smells foul or particularly strong, you might have contaminants in your groundwater, such as from a damaged sewer line in your yard. If your sump pump barely needs to run, it can also start to smell just from stagnant water — in this case, adding some fresh water can help the odor cycle out.
Should I test my sump pump?
It’s a great idea to test your sump pump before the rainy season and periodically to be safe.You can do this quite easily by simply pouring a few gallons of water into the sump pit to see if it activates. Testing your sump pump also encourages it to cycle out stagnant water that may have been sitting for a while.If your sump pump doesn’t activate, schedule a repair immediately so you don’t find yourself with a flooded basement!
